21 Months of Rory

A lot happened this month.  Most of all, Rory continues to charm us.  Every day with her is better than the last.

This month Rory did some real big-girl things:

-She weaned herself from her pacifier!  It went like this:  Faith, Favor, and Rory were playing in Rory's room and suddenly it was bedtime and ALL of Rory's pacifiers were missing.  I played it cool and laid her down without giving it to her, she went right to sleep and hasn't asked for it again.

-She's expressed interest in potty training.  She wants to do EVERYTHING her big sisters do, which includes the potty ritual of going potty, wiping, flushing, and washing her hands.  The other day, Jonathan sent Faith to the potty on her own and it was quiet for a really long time.  When he went to check on her, he found Rory in the bathroom with her diaper off and Faith trying to lift her onto the potty.  Awesome.

-She moved into a big girl bed!!!  Again, she wants to be like her sisters, so I figured we'd go for it.  It does have a bed rail so she doesn't fall out at night, but she loves climbing into bed by herself.  She insists on laying on her pillow in a certain way and always has to be covered up by her blanket.

Thats awesome! A LOT of big girl stuff this month! I am SOOO impressed with the paci thing! Great job Rory! Also, the friends who gave us our crib (which looks similar to yours) also told us it could be converted to a toddler bed but I didn't have any idea how. Then I saw your picture! Of course! Just take off the drop side! Isaiah doesn't climb out yet but this is totally what we will be doing too when its time! :)

Lesli, our crib came with an extra wooden rail (just one piece of wood) to replace the one side of the crib to convert it to a toddler bed. If yours is the same, hopefully you have that extra piece?
